The Mouse feels like he had a minor setback from the surgery. Doctor said progress is proceeding but maybe The Mouse was not fully prepared for the reality.

The back story, as part of the operation, doctor inserted a Foley catheter into The Mouse (which in itself was pretty uncomfortable/self conscious). The tube was removed this past Friday. And as a result, The Mouse’s “plumbing” is a little “lazy”. Control (both on and off) is a little unsettled right now (sorry TMI).

Long story short, The Mouse did take-out yesterday, less drama/trauma. One of the “go-to” places … Zippy’s

Burger Combo

Burger, fries, large drink (diet, not green river). Zippy’s burgers are in-between MikeyD’s and “gourmet” burgers. Not huge, not tiny either, not fancy, perfect for the situation yesterday.

Vegetarian Chili

The Mouse’s favorite “non-authentic” chili. 🙂

Bread Pudding, Whole Wheat Brownie/Blondie

Dessert, always there for you, good times or bad. Hee hee.

Doctor says the bladder muscles have gone through trauma, have to reset. Ugh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Repurposed

The Mouse eats … different … somtimes.

Often The Mouse orders a hamburger (not the MikeyD type), eats everything but the burger patty, and takes home the patty for future eats. Dunno why. Maybe to stretch the eating.

Always order rare so that the reheating doesn’t overcook.

Anyway, the two latest patties from Ruby Tuesday and Orchids at Halekulani (see previous posts).

Ruby Tuesday Burger Patty Bento

Okra, roasted carrots, dried parsley (an industrial-sized container in the warehouse kitchen that The Mouse has been using quite liberally.

Orchids Burger Patty Bento

Canned spinach, roasted carrot, natto, dried parsley.

The Mouse thinks the natto on the patty, best thing ever! Will be topping burgers with natto going forward. Nom! Hee hee!

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse’s new cheap eats find?

Order a basic MickyD burger, the cheapest, and customize it.

The Mouse’s Micky D Burger Order

Splurge on the tomato, worth it.

A few fresh shiso leaves, The Mouse is lucky.

“Banned”

The Mouse’s planned dinner last night.

Natto

The Cat did not exactly ban natto (opened) in the house, but she kinda gags at the smell (wet gym socks maybe?) Funny, The Cat likes fries stink tofu which has a similar odour. Hee hee.

So, as an alternative, The Mouse went to “McD’s”.

Hamburger, Cheeseburger

Pickled carrots, celery tops, tomatoes, apple slices (from the Happy Meal).

Gonna have to take the natto to work for weekday lunch, and eat outside the office.

Enjoy. Eat well.

BOGO :)

So far, Burger King, Jack in the Box, and Panda Express has various incentives to participate in their customer surveys. Being pake, try to participate as often as possible.

Burger King and Jack in the Box places time limits on answering the survey and using the perk. Sigh.

Used a “Jack’s” one last night.

Jumbo Jacks

Buy one, get one free. Hee hee!

Jumbo Jack, Tomato, Shiso

So, The Mouse not too fond of lettuce on his burgers, tends to slide around and make holding the burger a challenge.

Chopped lettuce is more logical to The Mouse than whole leaves. Same with sliced onions, chopped is okay, sliced, not so much.

Plus, The Mouse likes lots of tomato on his burgers/sandwiches. So, a little modification.

Burger, Mouse Style

Tomato, thinly sliced, sprinkled with salt and pepper, shiso, when available. Yum!

Oh, the “get one free” burger? Went into the refridge for tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat well.
